by Chris Cato

An accident Saturday night has turned into a fatality. DPS officials say 23-year-old Corey Neeley was driving with two others on Highway 103 East Saturday night when they went off the road near the Lake Sam Rayburn bridge. They apparently went down the boatramp, hit the embankment of the bridge, and rolled several times, ejecting one of the passengers.

Neeley died a little after 12:00 a..m. Sunday at Lufkin's Memorial Hospital. The other two involved in the accident, 29-year-old Susan Connor and 28-year-old Charles Tucker are still at the hospital in stable condition.
